Property management: it’s about owners, tenants and Harcourts professionals successfully working together. It’s a specialised business that requires a full range of effective, proven property management tools and solutions.
Residential rental property has long been a favoured investment option for many people in New Zealand and Central Otago. It's relatively easy to get into and can be particularly enjoyable if handled correctly. And it's precisely where the input of Harcourts Property Management and Rentals proves invaluable. We not only have a thorough understanding of the current rental market but also extensive knowledge of both expected short and long term trends for the future.
Our aim: to make your investment hassle-free, while keeping you fully informed of all developments.
Property management is more that just putting tenants into a dwelling:
- We monitor the rental market and review rent levels to maximise value and returns from your investment.
- We assess and match suitable tenants with your property to reduce issues and find a great fit.
- Our professional and friendly property managers build long-standing relationships with both owners and tenants.
- We run regular ongoing inspections, reporting and property maintenance to ensure your property is completely looked after.
Our reporting procedures keep you completely informed:
- We set up regular (bi-monthly or monthly) payments to your nominated bank account.
- Your monthly statements are posted or emailed to you so you're always financially aware.
- We send regular newsletters which include details of the current market conditions so you're always ahead of the rental game.
- We write and complete lease agreements and bond lodgements so you don't have to worry about the paperwork.
- We're hugely experienced in mediation and are comfortable taking tenancy action when necessary - we work in your best interest.
- We provide end of financial year tax documentation including all income and expenditure to make your tax and income reviews easy.
- We arrange cost allocations to maximise your income and reduce tax liability where possible.
We run regular property inspections to give you constant peace of mind:

- We offer to carry out routine inspections once every three months and will always send you full reports concerning its condition.
- We fully inspect your property at the end of each tenancy before any bond is released to ensure you're financially covered.
- We provide recommendations of any ongoing maintenance that may need to be completed or budgeted for.
We oversee all maintenance to free you of the hassle:
